Basic Rules

Non-contact, removing elements such as scrums, rucks, mauls, lineouts and kicks
Tackles are replaced by touches
Touch rugby is often played informally
One common variation is that a fair touch must be below the waist
Very little equipment is required to play
The southern hemisphere hugely supports touch, which is no surprise as its roots can be traced back to Australia in the 1960s where it was used as a warm-up game for full 15-a-side rugby.

In England, the popularity of touch has grown rapidly and is now played by more than 15,000 adults across the country.

The game is very simple: all you need is a rugby ball, a space to play and a group of friends. Teams are normally six-a-side and can be of all abilities and ages.

This fast, simple and exciting game promotes the fundamental skills of running, handling, evasion and support play, while developing basic principles of attack and defence, without the fear of getting hurt.
